  1. Hide Filters pane on Power BI Report Server

    Is there any possiblity to hide Filters pane in Power BI Report server. We don't want to show the filters been used to external clients in our report for unnecessary discussion on calls.

    Something like &filterPaneEnabled=false in Power BI Report Server

      • Export Report Server Power BI report to PDF

        Please add the capability to export Report Server PowerBI reports to formats like pdf, word, powerpoint. Some of this functionality exists in the service but please add it to Report Server.

          Thanks for the feedback – we have this in our plans for the service and a future release of Power BI Report Server. I will update the status as soon as we’ve started work on this highly requested feature!

          • Increase the data export row limit (30,000 rows max) in Power BI Report Server

            The capability to export raw data from Power BI is an important function for many users.

            Presently, the export data limits are as follows and confirmed at the community link below.

            - Power BI Service (cloud platform): 150,000 row maximum
            - Power BI Report Server (on-premise platform): 30,000 row maximum

            Please increase the export limit setting on Report Server to match that of Service. Better yet, increase them both to a much higher limit as requested by others in separate idea posts.

            • Security/Data Driven visibility- Show/Hide report elements/pages based on Security

              I have a SSAS Tabular model and a PBI dashboard that has a live connection on this model.

              What I want to accomplish is hide/show buttons/bookmarks based on security and data inside the SSAS tabular model.
              I don't think this is possible in PBI bookmarks now but it would be a key feature.

              This feature is actually blocking us from going Prod.

                • Power BI Report Server Auto Refresh

                  Add a setting on power BI report server to enable report to auto refresh and display fullscreen.
                  As well as a setting to hide all tool bars so that extensions do not need to be added into url.

                  • Connecting Power Bi report Server Data Source (Shared Data Source) from Power BI Desktop to develop the report.

                    Connecting Power BI Report Server Shared Data Source from Power Bi DeskTop. This Feature is available in Power BI Service. We can connect Power Bi Service published data sources from Power BI Desktop. However this is not available in On-Premise.

                    • Persistent Filters

                      In our Report Server deployment the most frequent request by end users is: “Give me a prefiltered (eg. by departement) version of the standard report so that I will not have to spend time on filtrering” - the request is valid - but with more than 100 departments maintaining such a setup becomes extremely time consuming - therefore I suggest bringing Persistent Filters to Report Server - it would dramatically reduce the time needed to maintian a enterprise
                      scale BI deployment - and would be a kikker-feature for Power BI Report Server (and align features beteeen cloud and on-prem)

                      • Dynamic row-level security for Power BI Report Server

                        Power BI Desktop (optimized for Report Server) allows you to define roles with DAX filters. However, when reports are published to the Report Server, there is no way to assign these roles to specific users/groups, so we can't yet implement row-level security on the Report Server. It would be great it Report Server was able to support dynamic row-level security similar to the Power BI Service.

                          planned  ·  Riccardo Muti responded

                          Thanks for your feedback! Here’s a quick update.

                          You can implement RLS at a couple of different layers:

                          1. Within your data source. Some data sources, such as SQL Server database (2016+) and Analysis Services, have built-in support for RLS. Then, when you connect from Power BI Desktop in DirectQuery mode, you’ll see only the data you’re allowed to see. The same does work in Power BI Report Server if you configure it to delegate (Kerberos Constrained Delegation) or impersonate (“Log in using these credentials, but then try to impersonate…” checkbox) the user viewing the report.

                          2. Within your Power BI report. You can define the roles and filters in Power BI Desktop, but can’t yet assign users/groups to these roles in Power BI Report Server. Rest assured we plan to address this gap as soon as we can. We don’t yet have a timeframe to share, but can…

                        • New column in portal

                          Nice to have in Power BI RS web portal: column with Last run date/time when data refresh completed
                          In that case we can briefly notice when model is refreshed or not.

                          • Be able to schedule reports at different times than 00 and 30 after the hour

                            the only available times in minutes for selection are 00 and 30 - we don't want all of our reports running at these times

                                • datepicker

                                  The date picker for the SSRS/paginated reports needs to have more advanced options. Most modern date pickers allow you to navigate dates more quickly by clicking on the month and the calendar view will dynamically change. An example can be found here: https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/datepicker/index . Please add a more advanced datepicker.

                                    We should be able to create Power BI Reports inside Report Server using shared dataset created with Report Builder since there is no option to share datasets throught PBI Reports.

                                    • Allow to pass more url-parameters to set lay-out when using IFrame

                                      Our company is using Power BI Reportserver. Our reports are included in our CMS with the ?rs:embed=true option.

                                      It would be great to pass more options to the report:

                                      Example
                                      - EnableParameterBar: Option to disable the parameterbar. Default TRUE
                                      - EnableTabBar: Option to disable the tabbar shown at the bottom of de report. Default TRUE

                                      • Power BI Server in AWS

                                        Allow customers to install and run Power BI Server in an AWS environment.

                                        This would be a "local/on-prem" install - just in the AWS cloud. Right now, options are MS cloud or physically on-prem at your facility.
